Run Away by Harlan Coben. (2019).

**4 out of 5 stars**

You’ve lost your daughter and she’s made it clear she doesn’t want to be found. Then you see her playing guitar in Central Park but she’s not the girl you remember – she’s living on the edge, frightened and clearly in trouble. You don’t even stop to think: you approach her, beg her to come home… and she runs. So you follow her into a dark and dangerous world where nothing and nowhere is safe.

When I pick up a Harlan Coben novel, I know I’m going to enjoy it; I’ve yet to read one of his that I haven’t liked. This one was no exception. I fully escaped into this twisty and suspense filled plot where nothing was what it seemed and yet it was all connected. I can describe diving into this novel as the following (and this description will not be a shock to you if you’ve read any of the author’s other books): the reader enters on one mystery, discovers a few more along the way while the original one is still pending, and then the reader finishes and exits the book on the original mystery being solved but with a twist. The author often uses the same formula and why not when he does such an excellent job with it! This novel would be a fabulous holiday read for those that enjoy the mystery/suspense thriller genre.
